Mysuru, July 25:- “Customers should cultivate the habit of asking about the percentage of tax levied after buying goods at shops,” said Assistant Commissioner of Police, Devaraja division, GN Mohan.
He was speaking after inaugurating the district branch of Navakarnataka Grahakara Jagruti Vedike at the Institution of Engineers (India) on JLB Road in the city on Thursday.
“It is a good initiative. Any product purchased by the customers should have specifications. The products have an expiry date and it should be used within that time limit,” he said.
“Customers purchase products with innocence. Products don’t reach the hands of customers the moment they are manufactured. It gets available after passing several stages. They are given to distributors, then to retailers and then to retail shops. Customers should know the maximum retail price of products, profit of the sellers and taxes. Customers should have the habit of questioning. Or else, their innocence will be misused,” he added.
State president of the association R Chandrashekhar, Dr CP Nanjaraj, Karnataka State Government Employees association president HK Ramu and others were present. (MR/KS)
